Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they've closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.
Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up - the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.
Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

wasn't very keen to read it. but I can say it's good. the plot catches you from the beginning. it seems like the same story of this kind of book. and it it's the same plot but I realized I like this kind of books.
One of the best so far, nevertheless I haven't listened to many
Other teen adventures, like the divergent triology and the hunger games.
He is a good expressive reader
No, but it made me reflect.
I commute for 4 hours a day 5 days a week via train, yet I am not a train employee...perhaps I should be.
Great book, too violent for kids, but a great puzzle thriller. Very excited for the sequels.
Better prose. The fault isn't on the audiobook, just on the writing itself.
Ended well, decently surprised and felt fulfilled with the story.
Nothing, the narration was good.
Disappointment in the writing and prose.
As the title says, the story is good, but the writing is not. I bought this book after I saw and enjoyed the movie. I really like the story and thought it was interesting. The problem, I think, is that the author is writing a serious story in a lighthearted tone. It's a hit or miss issue with this emerging young-adult dystopian future genre. In this case, it is a miss. What really annoyed me was the fake swear words. Often times I find that to be a glaring symptom of an author writing a PG-13 or R rated story down to a PG level. The movie told the story much better. While it omitted some of the finer details, it told the key aspects of the story while keeping a dark and serious tone and aimed for an older audience.
The writer side of my mind says, a bit predictable at times but solid. Still, I found myself genuinely caring about the well being of these characters, and that's always an achievement.
